Sumpter (Sump) David Griffin was the son of Noah Edward and Susan Izora Griffin Presley.

Sump married Mary Lillian Moorehead. Lillian was known to those who loved her as "Bill".

Sump and Bill lived in Cedar Hill, Texas and had several children.

1. Herman Clint Griffin, b. 03 AUG 1924, Tupelo, Lee Co., MS d. 17 AUG 1969 Cedar Hill, TX

2. Harriette Phebble Griffin, b. 27 JAN 1927, Tupelo, Lee Co., MS, d. 26 MAR 1928, Tupelo, Lee Co., MS

3. Oma Mazelle Griffin, born ; died.

Sump was one of nine children.

Sump was also half brother to the children of Noah Edward Presley and Mary Christine Houston, including Harold Ray Presley, former Sheriff of Tupelo.

And so to me it was Uncle Sump and Aunt Bill. They were my favorites when I was just a little girl. Aunt Bill had a collection of tiny figurines on her novelty shelf from places she visited and gifts from friends. The last time I saw Uncle Sump was at Noah Presley's house in Tupelo, MS.
